Please Mr. Postman

Yeah - I'm still here.  Just been busy/uncreative/unmotivated as of late.

So, I requested my Bar Exam scores.  I wish I hadn't done that, as this is what they reflected:

Passing Score: 346
My Score: 342

FOUR POINTS. FOUR MOTHER-EFFING POINTS.  1%.  That's it.  That's all that stood between me and my law license.  FOUR POINTS.

I would've been less frustrated if my score had been more like 250.

But, alas, what can you do?

Well, what I did is beg.  The CPA exam allows exam candidates (for a fee, of course.  hey - isn't money what this is all about after all??) to have their exams re-scored.  The Bar doesn't embrace such a policy - or at least I can find no evidence of one.  So I decided to appeal to the humanity of the Executive Director and Chairman.  I wrote them a very heartfelt letter in which I pleaded to have my exam re-scored.  Seeing as I only have one measly percent to go, it's worth a shot, right??  Sadly, they apparently do not agree with my logic as I have not heard back from anyone at the Board.  Sigh.

So, I've applied to take the blasted thing again.  Application, and accompanying check for $400, went out today.  That basically means $400 and 4 months of studying for FOUR POINTS.

All irritation aside - what this means is that I better damn well knock that piece of shi* out of the park in February, and I want any loyal readers I may still have left to hold me to that.  Studying must start now.  There will be no 3.5-week cram sessions this time.  MONTHS of preparation.  I will not take any chances.

That is all.
